Before I ever had kids, my husband and I knew we wanted to homeschool our kids. Well, it didn’t quite work out that way for us. I had to go back to the classroom due to financial needs, so my daughter started preschool in private Christian school. Later, she tried public school, which was a disaster and led us to homeschooling.

In January of third grade, we removed our daughter from public school and brought her home to learn. I could see the difference immediately. My daughter went from a miserable student to a very happy one. What about you? What is your story? Are you an accidental homeschooler or an intentional homeschooler?  What is your style of homeschooling? Are you a traditional homeschooler, or do you lean toward unschooling? We started out as traditional homeschoolers because of my teaching background. Several years later, we evolved into unschoolers. I must say it was a hard transition for me, but definitely not for my daughter. She took to it like white on rice! I do have to admit, while I tend to worry about whether or not she is getting enough, she is happy and flourishing. That is the beauty of homeschooling, whatever works for you is O.K.!

What Kind of Homeschooler Are You?
